  • Anna-Teresa Tymieniecka
Chapter
Part of the Analecta Husserliana book series (ANHU, volume 68)

Abstract

Education is a task that involves the individual person as intimately as it does the community. It impacts personal happiness as well as the laws that govern a society. In short, educaiton of the individual human being lies at the heart of human existence. In a way, it synthesizes the prevailing philosophical views of a given period within a society and the principal ideas of its culture.
